I don't care about the Pro Bowl at all and wouldn't care either way if it was ended, but it's not like they pulled his name out of a hat he was listed as an alternate back on the day the rosters were released.

Yeah I'm sure for certain players its an honor but the way they replace people really hurts the value of being selected a bit. I mean I love that Mitch made it but it means that he's judged as the 5th best QB in the conference...and that's assuming there wasn't a Pro Bowl alternate ahead of him that declined to go.

Edit: Maybe even 6th best QB since Dak Prescott was also added. So all 3 original NFC QBs have been replaced (Russell replaced Rodgers, Dak replaced Brees and Mitch replaced Goff)

It might be easier to list which Bears aren't on the Pro Bowl roster at this point.

Agree with the replacements hurting the value, but fan vote and reputation plays a big part in the selection process anyway.

And Mitch was probably a top 5 QB in the NFC this year. Brees, Goff, Ryan, and Wilson were clearly better. But Trubisky was better than Dak, Eli, and the Skins mess, neither Eagles QB played more than 1/2 a season. Winston, Newton, 49ers mess, Rosen, all worse. The most competition comes from the North and Mitch won the division going away and could be argued had a better season than Rodgers, Cousins, and Stafford also.

It still rules though that onetime Joe Girardi made the All-Star Team because he was the only catcher lame enough not to have any plans for the weekend.

That reminds me of the year that Desmond Clark "made" the Pro Bowl in a year where the Bears got absolutely no production from TEs. Even he was shocked. And then they realized that it was actually Dallas Clark that made it and the NFL rescinded the invite.

There's going to be a competition. Question is if Parkey is part of it or if it's someone like Folk vs. a draft pick.

The fact that they are already working out kickers makes me believe that they will cut him when the new league year starts. If they were signing UDFAs and stuff, I'd think they were preparing for a preseason competition.

I don’t know how you could bring Parkey back. He sucked at everything.

He's got to go. He will blow a few game-critical kicks, and every time he does it will make the Bears FO look like idiots for keeping him.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.
